Re: [dwm] A rather radical thought

Here is what I have exactly in mind from a user perspective:

Initially there is 1 column, a new client is inserted below the
currently selected window in the column, similiar to the stack
in tiled layout.

Each window can be moved left- or rightwards (Mod1-Shift-{h,l})
which may result in a new column if there is none. A
new column gets half the size of the current column.

Each window can also be moved up- or downwards in the column
itself (Mod1-Shift-{j,k}).

Columns can be grown/shrinked using Mod1-Control-{h,l}.
Windows can be grown/shrinked using Mod1-Control-{j,k}.

The navigation is rather straight-forward:

Focussing the previous/next window in the current column is done
with Mod1-{j,k}, focussing the previous/next column is done with

So the whole layout concept consists of basically 4 keys with 3
kinds of modifiers.

Kind regards,
